I'd guess that you're running MyBench on the same machine that MySQL is on?

All of my benchmarks have been ran from a separate server on the LAN connecting
to the MySQL server.

Mike got an overall average score of 12,000+ testing it locally.

Test from another box on the LAN and let me know how it goes ;)
